10.0252 I am sure that I am far from being alone in my complete conviction of the authenticity and validity of the Knowledge proposed to you in Iissiidiology. I believe that many of humankind’s great intellects will be inspired to significant new discoveries and scientific achievements because of the Information which I have tried to thoroughly convey and bring to human Consciousness through my books.
10.0253 Let me remind you that back in 1957, a well-known American physicist, Hugh Everett III, in his doctorate thesis, “The Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics”, derived a formula that proved mathematically that which in 1927 Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg termed the “Copenhagen Interpretation”. According to it, everything that we perceive as one Universe actually exists as an innumerable number of most incredible opportunities which, being superimposed on each other, form an infinite number of other — “parallel or alternative” — Universes.
10.0254 Based on this, the Life of a “human being” can be imagined as a particular journey along the timeline of one of the innumerable opportunities available in each of innumerable Universes, — a journey which from time to time is accompanied by “jumps” into other opportunities (in other Universes). Whatever dream or fantasy we can imagine, we can and do experience in them.
10.0255 That is why, in any act of choice, as I have already mentioned, between this or that probability, there is the real actualization of ALL imaginable (and “unimaginable”!) variants of this choice, in all its quantum possibilities. But each variant is implemented in a different Universe that differs from all others Universes in this choice.
10.0256 It doesn’t matter “what” or “who” chooses at a given moment: whether it’s an electron that is aware of the direction of its movement during the branching of a wave function (the so-called “splitting of worlds”) or a human being who decides that he should act in this way and not that. There already exist all possible outcomes of wave equations, all possible variants of our every moment by moment choice. Note that this statement, which expresses the essence of Everettics, implies the Principle of Immortality I’m trying to make clear to you.
10.0257 By the way, Everett’s theory still remains one of the most radical in science, with which many fear to agree, but none have been able to disprove either. It is well known in scientific circles that one criterion of the significance of any discovery is the extent of its insanity. In quantum mechanics, which by itself is so complicated that it may seem insane to most physics students, Everett’s theory is considered to be one of the most complex interpretations.
10.0258 Everett’s interpretation of quantum mechanics calls into question all conceptions of the Universe. In the 1970s, a well-known historian, M. Jammer, called it “one of the best kept secrets in this century”. Everett’s theory has more opponents than supporters, but nobody has managed to find a mistake in it for fifty years, although the theory was meticulously analyzed by well-respected scientists such as DeWitt, Graham, Prigozhin, Shklovskiy, Ginzburg, Petersen, Gronewald, and Wiener. The first positive reviewers were Everett’s teacher, John Wheeler, who considered Everett to be a scientist among the likes of Newton and Einstein, and Nobel Prize winner, Niels Bohr.
